I feel the gap between the 690 and 1190 is to much and to popular for KTM to ignore.
I think, hope, that the intro of the 1190 is just an addition to a full line of twin adventure bikes.

We will see. It sure looks like a poser bike (GS) to me,.I certainly wouldn't call it an upgrade.But understand why some do.
I would like the power, but I cant use what I have anyways
